Additional details

Sail Date: Sep 2017

As first time cruisers, we weren't sure what to expect. I had read that the ship was dated and boy it is. Cabins are like a 70s bond movie and are dark and dreary , although I expect any inside cabin would feel like this. The shower an old style shower head and curtain. but it does the job!

The rest of the ship feels old and in need of a re-make but again some of the older guests seem to like it that way. Raffles bar is an exception, light and airy with comfy chairs. The night time shows in the Broadway was of a really high standard I thought, with some great singing and dancing from the talented cast. Only negative would be that shows lasted only 1 hour , although repeated again later each night.

We did not partake in any daytime actvities , but there was a full schedule in the daily newsletter.
